What are you surprisingly good at?

Encouraging others, especially my husband whom I encourage to cook for me every day.

What are you most passionate about?

Personally, I am passionate about spending time with my family and friends! I am also a huge football fan. Broncos are my announced team but I secretly love the Patriots (who wouldn’t pick the G.O.A.T., Brady). Professionally, I am passionate about seeing work through to completion and ensuring those I work with are happy!

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

I think it’s so important to offer enough activities for children in the community. We need to ensure we are investing in our future and offering a space for children to enjoy time with one another. I’m not currently involved in any NPOs but I have been in the past.

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

Birthing babies for my friend who couldn’t and successfully running my own business! I am so proud my business became successful by word of mouth only. I stayed busy with more than enough clients!

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

Superpower would be to continue carrying babies for those who can’t. I would also like to have the ability to add time to be able to take on even more work (I love what I do).

Anything else?

I love to read and enjoy being part of a book club where it’s encouraged to show up even if you don’t finish the book.  A few of my favourite books include Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty; The Book of Negroes by Lawerence Hill; Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter. I am very competitive when it comes to games, family game night gets intense! I love meat & starch, no veggies for me!
